Silvia's Sonnet......

Sew.....here's the story.....we got this great group called Silvia's Sonnet.  The prints and colors are beautiful and the project looked like something we'd like to make.  There are three different blocks.  (You can see the other two blocks on our Facebook page.) A week ago Tuesday it was a quiet morning at the shop, so Jan and I were both in the back working on projects.  I decided to cut out the quilt P&B provided for Silvia's Sonnet.  That's where I got into some trouble.  I have since renamed the quilt project *Silvia's Sonnet to Sciatica*.  Yup.....about 5-6 years ago, I made Ms. Sciatic pretty angry ~ the nerve of her  =)   I managed to appease her over the following few months, but every now and again she gets a little huffy and lets me know it!  Well....she definitely did not like the fact that I was not using the higher cutting area, and instead cut all of the quilt bending over one of the tables in the back.  Man oh man, did she ever get ticked off this time!!  She just kind of hinted around for a day or two that she wasn't happy and then, wham....she let me have it with both barrels!  And being the biggest nerve in my body, she really has made her displeasure apparent.  

All kidding aside, I haven't been very active the last week or so because I've been laying pretty low.  (Thank you so much Harriet, Jan, Diane and Linda for pitching in and helping me!)  I did manage to make it down to my sewing machine and complete this block.  The quilt is going to be stunning and I am s l o w l y making Ms. Sciatic happier, so I am hoping to finish the blocks soon and put the quilt together to hand off and be quilted.

Next up around Fab-Etc will be cutting the 1200 or so kits for Shop Hop.  And we've got some other really fun things in the works that I'll be showing you in the next few days.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Me?  Well, our daughter and two grandsons are popping in tomorrow evening, but I'll spend the rest of the time making *piece offerings* to Ms. Sciatic  =)
